Today’s post is for those beauty gurus who are love a good braid! About a month ago I did a post on a holiday inspired outfit and my sister had done a really cool braided style on my hair, you didn’t think I would leave you guys hanging did you!? Of course not, we took pictures to give you the step by step on how to recreate this amazing hairstyle. So let’s give it a go!
What You Will Need
- Elastic Hair Ties
- Alligator Clips
- Bobby Pins
- Teasing Comb
- Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray
- Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray
I put clip in extensions in before we started, which is totally optional I just did it to add more hair. We also sprayed Oribe Texturizing Spray to give my hair some texture. Start off by sectioning off the hair in the back of your head, clipping the two front sections with alligator clips. Then create three loose braids, pictured below. Once you braid the hair you can always go back and loosen the braids by taking both sides of each one and pulling it apart.
In the next step you can remove the clips now that you have the braids done. Taking the three finished braids, intertwine them, braiding all three into one large braid. Tuck the loose ends into the braid.
Next take the hair from the front sections and tuck them into the top of the braided area. You can secure it with bobby pins if needed and then spray with the Living Proof Flex Shaping Spray.
For the last step, take the section that is underneath and still loose and use it to wrap around the bottom area of the braid, covering the hair ties and then tuck it into the tie to secure it. Finish off spraying the style with the Living Proof Flex Shaping Spray, and you’ve got yourself one awesome braid!
Tell me that’s not one gorgeous braid! I love braids because they are a great way to get your hair off of your face and still look stylish. Also great for those days that you don’t feel like washing your hair! Who else loves braids as much as I do?
